Right fielder Justin Maxwell -- who hit a three-run homer in the fourth -- keyed the Giants' five-run rally in the ninth to edge the Mariners, 9-8, in Cactus League action at Peoria Stadium on Saturday. Mariners catcher Mike Zunino cracked a pair of solo home runs, and third baseman Kyle Seager added another on a mid-90-degree day where the ball was flying.

3/28/2015 | Paxton healthy, building for regular season

Mariners starter James Paxton lasted just 3 2/3 innings against the Royals on a Friday night in which he struggled with his command, but the positive side is he feels 100 percent healthy.

3/27/2015 | Paxton, Mariners miss mark against Royals

3/27/2015 | McClendon holding off naming No. 5 starter

Taijuan Walker is scheduled to start again on Monday against the Angels, while Roenis Elias likely is slated for a Minor League outing in his next appearance. But manager Lloyd McClendon still wasn't ready to pronounce Walker as his fifth starter on Friday.

3/27/2015 | Rule 5 pick Rollins suspended 80 games for PEDs

Left-hander David Rollins, a Rule 5 Draft pick who was in the hunt for one of the final roster spots with the Mariners, was suspended 80 games on Friday for testing positive for Stanozolol, a performance-enhancing substance, in violation of Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

3/27/2015 | MLB Pipeline checks in from Mariners camp

Plenty of right-handed pop is starting to percolate through the Mariners' farm system. Seattle has spent its last three first-round picks -- and $10,959,100 -- on righty sluggers Zunino, D.J. Peterson and Alex Jackson.

3/26/2015 | Hernandez's strong start 'very pleasing' to Mariners

The Mariners lost to the Royals, 3-0, on Thursday at Peoria Stadium. But really only one thing mattered in this one. Felix Hernandez looked King-ly and thus all was well.

3/26/2015 | Elias, Mariners roughed up by Brewers' bats

Brewers left fielder Khris Davis made his first Spring Training home run count Thursday, hitting a first-inning grand slam that one-hopped its way clear out of Maryvale Baseball Park in the Brewers' 15-1 victory over the Mariners. Davis connected against Mariners left-hander Roenis Elias, who surrendered six earned runs on eight hits over three-plus innings.

3/26/2015 | Felix turns in solid outing against Royals

3/26/2015 | Mariners' bullpen battle remains wide open

While much of the focus on Mariners pitching this spring has swirled around the fifth-starter competition between Taijuan Walker and Roenis Elias, there is an even deeper and heated competition for relief spots on a club that posted the lowest bullpen ERA in baseball in 2014.

3/25/2015 | Sucre ready for action; hip 'not going to be a big deal'

After sitting out two games with a sore hip, Jesus Sucre was ready for duty on Wednesday night, and the Mariners' backup catcher said it's time to begin pointing toward the start of the regular season.

3/25/2015 | McClendon thinking about Weeks sharing leadoff role

Lloyd McClendon has endorsed center fielder Austin Jackson as a leadoff hitter ever since Seattle acquired him from the Tigers at last July's Trade Deadline, but the Mariners' skipper is toying with trying Rickie Weeks in that role at times this season as well.

3/25/2015 | Walker: Always room to improve despite dominant spring

It's hard to imagine Taijuan Walker pitching much better or doing much more to impress in his battle for the Mariners' fifth-starter position, but the 22-year-old insists there's more in the tank even after running his scoreless streak to 18 innings this spring in Wednesday night's 3-2 victory over the Cubs.

3/25/2015 | Cora to throw out first pitch on Opening Day

3/24/2015 | Smith bringing professional approach to Mariners

Seth Smith came out swinging Tuesday against the Padres, but playing against the team that traded him in the offseason carried no special weight for the Mariners' new right fielder.

3/24/2015 | Happ pleased with pitch count, not results

Pitching for a new team with people wondering what he's going to bring, J.A. Happ would have preferred a better impression than Tuesday's rough go in a 6-4 loss to the Padres. But the Mariners southpaw isn't going to overreact to a Spring Training outing, and neither is his manager.

3/24/2015 | Smith launches homer on rocky day for Happ

Seth Smith homered on a two-hit day and Austin Jackson also had two hits Tuesday as the Mariners dropped a Cactus League matchup against the Padres, 6-4, at the Peoria Sports Complex.

3/24/2015 | Rule 5 pick Rollins rolling at Mariners camp

3/23/2015 | Instead of facing Angels, Iwakuma faces Minor Leaguers

Mariners right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma gave up two runs and six hits over five innings on Monday in a Triple-A Minor League game against the Rangers' Round Rock club at the Peoria Sports Complex. He pitched in the Minor League game instead of facing the American League West-rival Angels in Seattle's Cactus League contest.

3/23/2015 | Mariners feel pieces are in place for special '15

The Mariners are getting the attention of the rest of the American League. This is a team that has reason to believe it can claim the AL West, but it could well find itself next October appearing in a World Series for the first time.

3/23/2015 | Seeking backup to Miller, Mariners try Bloomquist at short

The Mariners' infield depth has taken a hit with Chris Taylor's broken bone in his wrist, leaving Willie Bloomquist as the only experienced backup shortstop to Brad Miller.

3/23/2015 | Out of options, Ramirez's time with Mariners may soon end
